Backyard Chickens Certification

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE CERTIFICATION CLASS. CHECK BACK FOR FUTURE DATES.

Fall is a great time to learn the basics required to raise hens safely and successfully in urban and suburban areas. Participants will leave with a thorough list of all the things to prepare over the winter before getting chicks or pullets in the spring. Topics discussed will include everything from designing a coop and run, what to feed chicks and hens, predator protection, and breed selection. This FREE class is offered in partnership with the Indian Creek Nature Center, and participants will receive a certificate of completion enabling them to get a permit to keep chickens legally in Marion, Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities. This class is taught by John and Kelli Lane of www.thesustainablecouple.com.

Here's a brochure for additional information for Marion.
